Robert Covington went undrafted out of Tennessee state, and was immediately signed to the Rockets on a two year rookie minimum with $150,000 guaranteed. In college he mainly played power forward, and did a good job shooting the ball, and in the Rocket's summer league he mainly played small forward, and did a good job shooting the ball.
In the Q&A he claims that he's not an undersized four, he's a small forward who had to be a small ball 4 in college to help his team win.
Harden supposedly likes him. He supposedly shoots very well. He gives massive props to the coaching staff, and says that he learned a lot from Summer League.
Friedman had already said some nice things about Covington on twitter, and now, doing a Q&A with him, it makes me believe that Friedman expects Covington to be with the team past camp.
